Just an update to repost these great reviews made by AznKei:

 

Today, I'm going to review 4 missions made by TheDru1d. These missions are part of his Rags to Riches storyline.

 

- Writing: Excellent, as they're pretty much well written with the right structure and punctuations. Also, nice text colorings that are mainly used to highlight the character names and objectives.

- Presentation: Excellent. Nice viewing and timing between different cutscenes. There's also a noticeable amount of objects and animations that can be found in these missions, which make the missions much more alive and different.

 

Rags to Riches

- Length: Excellent, as it can be done in 12 minutes. The player plays as Dirk, and along with with his wife Bambi and his cousin Ron, are starting a new life by getting some weapons from ammunation and the Ballas and start robbing money at the local betting shop in Los Santos. Most of the mission length involves traveling into many places.

- Difficulty: Hard. The enemies have powerful weapons with very good accuracies. Also, while the player has a shotgun, it's less effective against enemies with high hp and no headshot options, especially when they're together. The best option is to kill them one at a time from a distance. There's also a 5 star wanted level which is actually less scary because of the lack of traffic, so proceed to the destination carefully.

- Variety: Good. The characters include Dirk, Bambi, Ron, the Ballas members, the betting shop employees and the LSPD. The weapons include m4, shotgun, combat shotgun and country rifle. The vehicle includes Dirk's own car.

 

Back to Rags

- Length: Good, as it can be done in 6 minutes. The player Dirk, Ron and Bambi forgot their robbed money at the back of their car from the abandonned restaurant and find out that their car dissappeared once they got outside. They must get the clues in order to find them.

- Difficulty: Normal. There's less enemies to deal in this mission. However, one enemy is on his car while the surroundings is full of explosive barrels. Stay away from that area while at the same time, run away from the incoming car, while looking from a safe place where the enemy car can't reach you. Also, this mission can requires logic and exploration in order to progress.

- Variety: Good. The characters include Dirk, Bambi, Ron, a hobo ped and a drug dealer. The weapons include m4 and mp5. The vehicles include the drug dealer's car and bikes. The objects include crates, boxes, pizza and explosive barrels.

 

Lost

- Length: Excellent, as it can be done in 10 minutes. The player Dirk and Ron are looking for the Hobo who might stole their robbed money near the LSPD HQ when the boss of the recently killed drug dealer wants his revenge against the duo with his goons. After Dirk goes to the stadium from Bambi via his cellphone when he learns that his wife has been kidnapped by some strangers.

- Difficulty: Hard. The enemies have powerful weapons with very good accuracies. Also, while the player has a shotgun, it's less effective against enemies with high hp and no headshot options. The best option is to kill them one at a time from a distance. Also, your ally Ron can be annoying as he goes straight to the places who are most likely to be killed, hence failing the mission. Watch out of the enemy who throws molotov cocktails.

- Variety: Very Good. The characters include Dirk, Ron, the drug dealer associates and a kidnapping witness. The weapons include ak-47, smoke grenade, molotov cocktails, micro-uzi, tec-9, and shotgun. The vehicle includes Dirk's own car. The objects include crates, boxes and explosive barrels.

 

Information

- Length: Very Good, as it can be done in 8 minutes. The player Dirk tells Ron about Bambi's kidnapping and the latter tells to meet a illegal race sponsorer named Gianni at the tunnel of south Los Santos. Gianni wants Dirk to pass both the beginning and pro race which requires fast car and driving precision.

- Difficulty: Hard. There's no shootout in this mission. However, the racing part can be less forgiving for penalty, since the pro race is full of explosive barrels, while at the same time, have a strict time limit. Memorization and precise timing is key of success in this mission.

- Variety: Very Good. The characters include Dirk, Ron, Gianni and the racing participants and spectators. The weapon includes shotgun. The vehicle includes Dirk's own car and many different racing cars. The objects include crates, boxes, ramps and explosive barrels.

 

Overall, the missions are good icon14.gif . The missions can be quite hard and annoying for the average players, especially because of the enemy high accuracies and the explosive barrels. Otherwise, good job for the author and keep up the good work biggrin.gif .
